Description Dimitris Glezos 2007-09-25 23:44:48 UTC
## Description of problem:

The string translator-credits are substituted in each PO file with the names of
the translators, separated with new line characters. We should find a way to
embed this information in all non-english documents.

FWIW, a google search for "docbook translator-credits" returns many results.
This should be rather simple to do it inside the XML of each document, by
creating a Colophon section at the end. Ideally, the common toolchain should put
this automatically in the header, together with the authors etc.

We could refer to the (excellent) GNOME doc library for this. A quick link
(could be useless though):
